FERC Again Gets Top Rankings in Employee Satisfaction, Commitment Survey
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) ranked No. 5 out of 24 mid-sized agencies in employee satisfaction and commitment, according to the nonprofit Partnership for Public Service 2015 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government survey.
Two FERC offices ranked in the Top 10 of the 320 agency subcomponents for this year’s survey: FERC’s Office of General Counsel ranked No. 2, and FERC’s Office of Energy Market Regulation ranked No. 10. In addition, FERC’s Office of Energy Projects came in at No. 29, in the top 10 percent of ranked agency subcomponents.
FERC scored 75.5 out of 100 on the survey’s employee satisfaction and commitment score, the fifth highest of all mid-size agencies, an increase of 2.2 points over last year.
Many issues – from teamwork to strategic management – influence how employees view their workplaces and rate their satisfaction and commitment. FERC was No. 2 in the effective leadership category with a score of 67.4, No. 3 in teamwork, with a score of 76.6, and fourth in strategic management, with a score of 68.6.
This year’s survey features a new measurement comparing agencies in specific mission areas. For federal agencies in the energy and environment category, FERC was ranked No. 2.
“FERC staffers are talented, hard-working and dedicated, and I am honored to work side by side with them, and to lead an organization that is consistently among the leaders in the federal Best Places to Work survey,” FERC Chairman Norman Bay said.
Produced by the Partnership and Deloitte, the Best Places to Work rankings provide critical information to help agencies, the administration and Congress assess workplace health and performance. The rankings measure overall satisfaction and commitment and employee attitudes on 10 workplace categories, including leadership, teamwork, strategic management and innovation.
